    650b Ml8 is it possible?

    I'm getting a small ML8, finally. I had a Med it was a tad too big for me. I really want to build it with 650b front and rear and just wondering if it's possible. I'm running 650b front with neomoto on my Mojo and I love it. I don't mind running the quasimoto on the rear if clearance is an issue. I'm thinking about running the Wotan in the front because the clearance is not an issue for sure it would except up to 2.8" tire(26"wheel)
    Has any one try this before. Thanks

    Yes, you can run a 650b or a 29" front wheel with the correct sized reducers.
    Rear wheel? Not likely.

    My 650B wheels with Pacenti Neo Motos on won't get close to fitting in the rear of my Durance.

    [ dig this one out of the grave ... ]

    was this a closed issue? i ask, because i have an ml8 rear triangle here that fits a lightly worn (70% tread height remaining) neo-moto 2.3" on a late model velocity blunt. at 20psi the wheel turns without tyre rub - there's not a lot of room, but it rolls ...

    Thanks ragetty, I've got to try that. I tried with my NM 2.3 on a p35 but it rubs, may be blunt is less fat plus I don't have my p35 with me right now I may try it with the QuasiMoto just to see.
